The Restoration Project

The Pump Room Gardens is the village green of Leamington spa, and is designated as Grade II on the English Heritage List of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest.  Warwick District Council and the Friends of the Pump Room Gardens have been awarded a grant of £1million (almost!) from the Heritage Lottery Find to pay for the restoration of the gardens and band stand, as well as a calendar of events and activities over 5 years. 

PRG plan

We have now been given permission to start, and will be updating the website as things start to happen! Meanwhile here is a copy of the Conservation Management Plan created in preparation for the application, and which includes a wealth of history and detail.
